Assorted Doom from Abroad

Homosexualists in Denmark have decided to force their beliefs on the churches there. The parliament passed--by a wide margin--a law making it mandatory for all churches to conduct "gay marriages."  Worse still, "Under the law, individual priests can refuse to carry out the ceremony, but the local bishop must arrange a replacement for their church." It is entirely possible that, decades hence when Christianity has been driven underground, the places which have implemented Sharia Law will be preferable to those which have implemented it secular analogue.

Meanwhile, the homosexualists in the United Kingdom are calling for some votes concerning "gay marriage," but also are suggesting that only those who vote the right way should be counted. It's an election which is every bit as fair and open and democratic as in the totalitarian communist countries. Opposition to "gay marriage" will by branded as "not acceptable," An most ironically, given Denmark, is this little nugget:
 But Mr Clegg disagreed, pointing to the fact that the original law bringing in civil partnerships was also not passed on a free vote in the House of Commons.
He the BBC’s Andrew Marr porgramme: “My view is that in the same way that the civil partnerships legislation that was introduced under Labour was a whipped vote, I personally don’t think this is something that should be subject to a great free-for-all because we’re not asking people to make a decision of conscience about religion.” 
Mr Clegg said gay marriage was not “a matter of conscience” because the Government was not forcing churches to marry homosexual couples.
Yes, but for how long will that be true?  As Chesterton observed, "that road goes down and down."
